Suffering from an unfortunate lack of melody, Six Feet Deep's pounding Struggle is a muddled blend of New York-style hardcore punk and the murky riffing of sludge metal. Although the material is charged with plenty of venom, the repetitive riffing and overall tone deserve better hooks than what is offered here. The hoarse yelps and roars attached to every song begin to wear out the listener though time, eventually rendering the second half of the album dull and headache-inducing. This is a shame, if only because of the excellent riffing displayed at times. But the overall album is pretty disappointing, made up of visceral ear assaults with no real payoff in the end.
